  1. Utilize AAD Security Groups for Device "Additional Local Administrators" support

    Emulating the Intune Roles method with Assignments, Members and Scopes would be ideal. Also the ability to disable Global Admin access (limit to groups/scopes added).

    We’re currently working on this capability and will provide an update when it’s done.

    However, instead of expanding the “Additional Local administrators” setting, we will support adding AAD groups to Windows 10 local groups (.e.g Administrators, Remote Desktop Users) via MDM policy and elevate user privileges on logon. This will provide greater flexibility to assign different groups to different devices

  2. "Change password" policy

    Add a new Azure AD B2C policy that allows a signed-in user to change his or her password. Not the same as password reset.

    We are in the process of planning this feature and hope to have a preview available by the end of november. In the meantime, could you please respond to aadb2cpreview@microsoft.com with your responses to the following questions:

    - If you had a “password change” policy, what kind of information would you like to get back once the policy has been executed?
    - Would you prefer to have a policy that forces you to sign in first, and then asks you to change the password, or one that let’s you do it all on the same page?
    - Would you want an email to get sent out to the user whenever the password is changed?

  3. Support for 3rd party EMM solutions when requiring device compliance

    We use Airwatch for managing mobile devices. We want to use conditional access policies to ensure the device has been marked as compliant by Airwatch before allowing access to certain applications.

    Currently Azure AD Conditional Access Policies only supports InTune for checking device compliance as described @ https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-conditional-access-policy-connected-applications#trusted-devices. This should be extended to support 3rd party EMM solutions.

    Thanks for your feedback. Microsoft is currently working with third party MDM providers to enable this scenario. We will update this thread once we have more information to share.

  4. Allow more customization of the myapps.microsoft.com portal.

    Would be great if I could forward a subdomain to our myapps.microsoft.com portal. Instead of giving users a the microsoft.com URL, I want to give them one.theblaze.com.

    Second, would be great if there was a newsfeed widget at the top of the portal that could show an RSS feed of company news.

    Thanks so much for the feedback! Customizations of the My Apps portal for both end users and admins are on our roadmap. This includes providing the ability to re-arrange and group apps and as well as using a customizable domain.

    We are also looking to see if we can enable embedding other components like widgets. We’re still in process of validating options for this.
    Please keep sharing your feedback and ideas around this!

  5. AADB2C: How-to on multi-tenant applications based on B2C

    As service provider using Azure as the underlying platform, I want to create an application that allows companies to create and manage their tenants and users within my service in order to provide a public service area as well as a privately owned area for the company.

    I've read about B2C supporting multi-tenant, but I couldn't find hints within the documentation...

  7. CORS for App Proxy

    There should be CORS setting available on App Proxy just like we have the CORS available for App Services.

    Making calls from Azure Apps into an Azure App Proxy App is a very common scenario, especially when on-prem applications are surfaced externally using App proxy.

    We are looking at enabling a feature that focuses on supporting CORS preflight requests between two applications. This works by allowing you to configure the response and have App Proxy handle it on behalf of the app.

    A pre-requisite for this feature to work is that the user must be able to authenticate into the second application in order to avoid a CORS issue from the login flow into the second app.
    To avoid this the user will have to make sure they have already accessed the 2nd application before the CORS request, and has valid credentials. This should work for wildcard apps and can also be achieved by adding a fake link / image to the 2nd application in the first application.

    We would love to get your feedback on this requirement and if this is something that will fit your use case.

  8. Allow password expiration policy to sync from on-prem AD to Azure AD

    Why doesn't a users cloud password expire when the on-prem password expires? We use an Azure Application Proxy App to securely publish an extranet to many employees and vendors whom never log into our domain directly but have on-prem AD accounts. To ensure they change their passwords regularly, we have to change their on-prem password once it expires so they are forced to use SSPR and create a new password.

  9. AADB2C: include username in JWT claims

    AADB2C supports either email addresses or usernames for accounts. If a directory uses usernames, you don't get that username as a claim in the JWT. This means an extra trip to Azure must be made to retrieve the username. Please consider including the username in the JWT.

  11. Go Direct to Password Reset from Sign-In/Sign-Up

    The Sign-in only policy allows the user to go directly to the password reset.

    The Sign-in/Sign-Up does not allow this. The user gets redirected back and you have to handle AADB2C90118.

    Reference: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41497158/azure-ad-b2c-self-service-password-reset-link-doesnt-work

    While this flow is useful for some people the opposite is also true. Please allow me to specify the password reset policy in my sign-in/sign-up policy so the round trip is not required if I don't want it.

  12. AD Groups in Application Owners

    Would be great to be able to add groups to application owners in AD instead of only users. Scenario is to use on-prem AD synced with Azure to keep management of application roles/groups/etc on-prem for cloud hosted solutions.

    Thanks!

  13. Pre-Provision MFA "StrongAuthenticationUserDetails" via PowerShell?

    We have over 12,000 users we need to provision for MFA.

    I know we can enable MFA via PowerShell, but there doesn't seem to be a way to update the "StrongAuthenticationUserDetails" attribute (Alt. Phone, Email, etc.) programmatically.

    This is turning out to be a huge pain for us. Does anyone have a timeline for when we'll be able to do this?

  15. Get 'low license count' notification

    It would be beneficial to get a notification when license count gets to x number. We are syncing our users with DirSync and apply licenses based on group membership. When users get synced and we have no licenses, I have zero idea until someone comes to me that they cannot get logged in to O365.

  17. Getting more granular permissions with Graph API and SPO sites

    Do we have any plans to allow Azure AD-registered apps accessing Microsoft Graph APIs (such as SharePoint Online) to have more granular permissions? Can we get SharePoint Online (SPO) to enforce more granular authorization rules based on the app identity and some manifest rules to restrict the site collection for example, instead of Sites.Read.All? I am looking for something like this: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/security-apponly-azureacs, but for Azure-AD apps (where we can specify really granular permissions).

    This question is around the ability to customize Microsoft Graph APIs such as SharePoint Online APIs to restrict the site collections that can be accessed by…

  19. Allow User Account Administrator to enable MFA for users, not require global admin

    A best practice is to limit the number of global admins, yet a global admin is required to enable MFA for users. This should be allowed in the User Account Administrator role to enable MFA for users.

    We aren’t planning to add the ability to enable MFA per-user to the Account Administrator, but we do have planned a limited admin role that will be able to perform that function, along with other MFA related settings. If you’ve implemented MFA through Conditional Access policy instead of the per-user enablement, you can use the Conditional Access Policy admin to control who has to do MFA.

  20. All Powershell/BASH/script Azure AD join

    For converting BOYD to Azure AD in the field w/o user intervention, we need a way for elevated accounts to be able to perform an Azure AD join of devices via script.... come on, this is the basics...

    Think of it as MDM self-enrollment... if not that, then give us a one-click way for users to self-enroll the device.

    Thanks for the feedback on this. There are several ways to do Azure AD join (OOBE, bulk enrollment and Autopilot) which provide a richer experience to join devices to Azure AD. We’re continuously working to enhance those, so currently this is unplanned for the near future. Please continue to vote to help us prioritize
